IOM America is a tax-deductible 501c(3) nonprofit dedicated to helping members of the body of Christ to experience, mature in, and communicate effectively the message of identification with Christ in His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension in their various spheres of influence. Our ministry comes by way of a 3-Fold Vision: Biblical Worldview, Discipleship & Training and the Exchanged Life Global Initiative. All three fold into the International Fellowship of Exchanged Life E-Community (IFEL).It is our confession that worldview is birthed through personal identity! This is why it is critical for our workers to first understand who they are in Christ before they can lead another in such a discovery. With this in mind, we aim to gently message the identification truths of co-death, burial, resurrection, and ascension into all aspects of ministry communication. It is our experience that if any ministry or its workers focus on worldview issues before experientially understanding the power of the Cross, these workers could actually lead the Church away from the Truth that will set them free.
Fold 1: Worldview Development
Fold 1: Worldview Development
Fold 2: Discipleship and Training
Our primary objective is to equip individuals for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ and to assist in empowering men, women, children, and families to have a greater impact on the communities they serve. This is accomplished by providing Christ-centered, Bible-based guidance and training that focuses on issues pertaining to the indwelt Christian's identity in Christ.The ministry of IOM has adopted the proposal of the Exchanged Life Global Initiative, which has provided the ministry with a proactive pro-vision, in order to revitalize the worldview of uniting Exchanged Life workers throughout the entire world. In addition to our existing strong partnerships, we welcome the partnerships of other ministries that focus on the message of the Exchanged Life to join our efforts!

We press forward to show individuals their freedom from enslaving mental, emotional and spiritual conflicts by placing a special emphasis on IDENTITY MATTERS. The counseling style is direct, honest and truly biblical.
Each ministry session is designed to provide the client with an experience that centers upon the integration process of strong biblical Truth, faith, and what IOM coins as Transformational Biblical Worldview & Exchanged Life Development. The indwelt Christian will become more established and pronounced in their Christian faith and become acutely aware of their self-life behavior and how it wars against the Word of God. We discover this in the Profile of Man:
This counseling/discipleship is offered to all - Christians and non-Christians alike. It is particularly helpful for those interested in learning how to effectively use the Word of God in a discipleship/ministry setting, in gaining personal help, as well as furthering oneself in the equipping process of being a minister of the Gospel. We use a method we call "Components of Discipleship."

Our efforts strongly hinge on the International Fellowship of Exchanged Life: an e-community that will provide Exchanged Life workers throughout the world with a single online community that will provide: promotions of member web sites, social networks throughout, a separate members’ Exchanged Life bookstore, chat room for members, class registration from member to member and much much more.
IOM America is in the process of outsourcing plans to design, develop, and host IOM America’s two websites (IOM’s general site & International Fellowship of Exchanged Life (IFEL). In fact, "story board" meetings are being conducted in several states with Exchanged Life ministries that are backing the vision. This will be a concept to completion production.
The existing IOM web site was originally designed and produced with the basic model and classic web site look but until our project is complete, our website is routed to Dr. Phinney’s blog spot, which is where you are reading this. We have been told that we are pushing the edges of Blog-spot and this site is not structurally sound enough to bear the weight of our Global Initiative. So - we have a need to work quickly. Here is a few details to our vision:
